Raw Spinach and Avocado Dip

Raw-Spinach-and-Avocado-Dip

This Raw Spinach and Avocado Dip is bright green and oh so fresh!

There’s just nothing else like eating live food and the way it makes your body feel afterwards.

It’s such a clean, pure way of eating.

When I finished making this recipe (and ate the entire bowl by myself in one sitting), I couldn’t believe that I had just eaten 5 cups of spinach!  And an entire avocado!

The first thing that strikes me when I look at it is how vibrant and green it is!

Is it really ok to call a dip “beautiful”?  For this one, I think so.

This is an excellent dip for dehydrated crackers, Raw Corn Chips or even some fresh vegetables.

It’s fast and easy to make and only requires a few basic ingredients that you probably already have on hand!

Tip #1:   This recipe will make enough for 1 – 2 servings.  If you need more, you will need to double the recipe.

Tip #2:  Everytime I make it, I use slightly different amounts in different combinations of pink himalayan salt, garlic, lemon cayenne pepper and onions, so it always tastes a little different each time (ex.  sometimes I use 2 lemons instead of 1 and it’s a little tangier, sometimes I put a tad more cayenne and it’s extra spicy, same with the garlic and onion).  Just make adjustments to your liking.
